The Mexicans and the Spanish are connected to the dead in ways that no other cultures are. Federico Garcia Lorca famously said, “A dead man in Spain is more alive than in any other country.” And he was right. Every year the Mexicans and many Spaniards celebrate Dia de Los Muertos, the Day of the Dead, and it’s this fun filled celebration on which Wazdan Games base their latest slot. This is Los Muertos.
Presented over a 5x4 setup, this slightly unusual gameplay also has 40 fixed paylines, a very nice touch. This game is packed with great atmosphere, just like the legendary day, and it’s waiting for you to play and make your fortune. One stake cost 40 coins, and the game has a max of two stakes per round, worth noting during play.
Soak up the vibe and enjoy the imagery
Masked characters and lovely mysterious backdrop help set the scene and take you on the journey to the bonus features and free spins that can be retriggered, accompanied by Big and Colossal Symbols, a Giant bonus, Giant Wilds and Scatters, along with a host of features to keep you hooked.
During the base game you’ll interact with Giant Symbols – large incarnations of standard icons made up of blocks of 2x2 or 3x3 and displayed fully or partially. Also present during the extra spins rounds too.
Have a wild time on the other side
The Giant Wild is found in the game’s bonus round as a 3x3 symbol on the middle reel. Not to be confused with the Giant Bonus that triggers the Bonus Slot. If you get a section of this symbol on the reels after a spin, it turns into 3, 6 or 9 individual Bonus Slot icons with Scatters, Free Spin icons, Extra Spin icons and three different types of Rose. A Red Rose multiplies the line bet by 1x, Pink Rose by a 3x Multiplier and White Rose boosts the balance by 5x.
On the paytable you’ll find themed skull-shaped icons for the higher value wins, and the lower value wins adopting the classic playing card icons from 10 to Ace. Couple these wins with a tasty gamble feature which doubles your wins if you’re lucky but loses you all your cash if you’re not!
We like Los Muertos, it has a air of fun and passion about it, like the culture in which it follows. There is some great winning potential here, and we think that a combination of this along with the ability to play without too much prior knowledge of how slots work makes for a great all-rounder. Players of all budgets and levels of experience will love this.
